A pastel drawing by Benjamin Cheshire, "Winter Scent" is typical of the creative work in the "Cold" Exhibition.
Fifty paintings, ceramics, sculptures, photographs, lithographs and other art pieces suggesting or depicting winter cold will be on display through the end of February in an exhibition featuring works by 26 artists who live or work in Great Falls.
From realistic images of snow scenes to winter animals to abstract compositions using "cold" colors, the varied exhibit shows winter in all its glory.
The exhibit, called "Cold," can be seen only online. To access it, visitors must go to the website of Great Falls Studios, a network of more than 100 artists based in Great Falls. The address is www.GreatFallsStudios.com. To see the show, click on "virtual gallery." You can enlarge each image and bring up information on each work by clicking again on each piece.
The Great Falls Virtual Gallery opened in 2011. Each month it displays a different themed exhibit of work by artists in Great Falls. Twice a year, the site features work by children at local schools. The March theme is "March Madness."
